Located in the trendy Cabo San Lucas hotel corridor, the 56-suite Casa del Mar Beach, Golf & Spa Resort has announced its new “Siesta Sundays” package for 2005. Guests arriving on Sunday and staying for four days will receive a special 30 percent savings over regular rates. The “Siesta Sundays” promotion will be available from Jan. 15 to May 31 and Nov. 1 to Dec. 20.

Already a solid value with its substantial 30 percent savings, the property has spiced up “Siesta Sundays” even more by adding the following exclusive amenities:

Ocean-view accommodations in a deluxe room or luxury suite

Roundtrip airport transfers

Daily complimentary shuttle to Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo

25 percent discount on golf at the Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Cabo Real Championship Golf Course

Unlimited use of spa Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna

Rates for the deluxe ocean-view category including the “Siesta Sundays” promotional savings are from $289 between Jan. 15-Feb. 28, and go as low as $269 from March 1-May 31 and Nov. 1-Dec. 20. For the same periods, luxury suite rates are from $329 and go as low as $309 respectively. All rooms are subject to a 10 percent service charge and 12 percent government tax.

While sharing a driveway with Las Ventanas, intimate Casa del Mar has earned a reputation for its service, value and decor. The hacienda-style resort with lush tropical gardens was recently voted among the “World’s Best Golf Resorts” by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler and a “Favorite” by the readers of Departures.

Situated between the desert and the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez at the tip of Mexico’s Baja California, Casa del Mar features graceful arches, cobbled courtyards, tiled fountains and authentic Mexican hacienda architecture.

The property’s Sueños del Mar Spa offers a wide range of treatments, including herbal and aroma wraps, massages, facials, skin-care treatments and therapeutic bodywork. For on-site recreation, guests have access to a Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, fully equipped gym and four tennis courts and a paddle tennis court (all lighted for nighttime play).

Casa del Mar Beach is part of the Cabo Real resort development, which has been tagged the “Pebble Beach of Mexico.” Guests can tee-off at the championship 18-hole Cabo Real Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and rated among the best in Latin America.

The resort’s large guestrooms all feature ocean views, terraces or balconies, air conditioning, ceiling fans, sofas, bathrooms with Jacuzzis and separate showers, remote-controlled television, telephones, mini-bars, safes and other special amenities. Casa del Mar also features one- and two-bedroom luxury suites with full kitchen facilities suitable for couples, families or groups of friends traveling together.
